The director of Series 8’s finale has responded to complaints regarding its US cinema screenings.

It’s been confirmed that Dark Water and Death in Heaven will be shown on the big screen in 3D in over 700 theaters across America as part of a special one-off event to coincide with the Series 9 premiere in September. However, the BBC received inevitable criticism when they later affirmed that they won’t be hosting similar screenings in the UK. “I saw a lot of disappointed comments,” Rachel Talaley has posted on Tumblr. “So I asked this question in the office today.”

She elaborated: “I was told that the cinemas are the problem. The BBC would love to show it but the few screens that have Dolby Atmos did not ask for it. Fan requests to UGC and/or IMAX might have an effect, but the USA has enjoyed growing success with event cinema.”

tonight-the-end-is-nigh

After an agonising week, the wait is almost over and we are now just hours away from this year’s Doctor Who finale. The question is… are you ready!?

Last week’s momentous cliffhanger let off an almighty bang in the stratosphere of the Doctor Who fandom and it seems like everyone has since been talking about the Earth-shattering revalation. Our Twitter feed has been inundated with your views, with @samcarver123 describing Missy’s true identity as “an amazing twist”, while @RossHitchin was full of praise for Michelle Gomez, who “stole the show”.

Not all of your reactions have been positive, however. According to @nusechris100, the storyline is a “desperate and stupid stunt”, one which @Simply_Lucy feels was “miserably predictable”. Whatever your opinions are, we’ll all be tuning in to Death in Heaven tonight with baited breath, as the Doctor faces his greatest challenge yet and old friends unite…

Your head will no doubt be all over the place as the credits roll after tonight’s adventure but fear not because we’ll be here from 9pm for you to post your initial reactions. It’s been a truly epic three months in the TARDIS, but all good things must come to an end…
